The Mississippi Valley Textile Museum is both proud and pleased to announce that the renowned textile artist William Hodge will attend Fibrefest 2017 to be part of our textile festival. On the evening of Saturday, September 9 at 7pm at the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum in the Nora Rosamund Hughes Gallery, William will conduct a small and select tour through his exhibition.
William C. G. Hodge is a talented artist and a well spoken educator who teaches with passion and brings a rich depth of experience to all his lectures and workshops.
A selection of his works is currently on display at the Museum until September 16. These pieces represent a smattering of the enormous contribution made by this Canadian artist to the textile art world and are prime examples of the scope of his talent. In this intimate setting, he will guide attendees through each of his pieces being exhibited; teaching, inspiring and fostering creativity.
Only a small group of 30 attendees can be welcomed. This lucky group will enjoy the celebratory evening of wine, cheese, and art. Tickets are $20 and available at the Museum.
Please note that the artist will also be on hand at the gallery during the afternoon of Sunday, Sept. 10, from 1-2 pm to answer questions from those who wish to view this exhibit before it closes the following weekend.
